How does the baby grow?
This week, the baby weighs 1kg and is 36cm long from the top of the head to the heel. The baby may blink and now has eyelashes. With developing eyesight, the baby can see the light fading through the walls of the mother’s womb. Billions of neurons are also developing in the brain and more fat is added to the body to prepare for life in the outside world.
Changes occurring in the mother’s body during the 28th week of pregnancy
Moms are about to finish! This week is the beginning of the third and final trimester. Moms will gain about 500 grams per week for these three months.
At this time, some women feel uncomfortable under the feet and wiggle the feet while trying to relax or sleep. Try straightening or massaging the feet, reducing caffeine, which can make symptoms worse.
